Delonte takes Home Depot by storm


Delonte takes Home Depot by storm

By Jon Fucile

The NBA lockout is in full effect and the players are being hit hard. Everyones favorite Celtics troublemaker and comedian Delonte West posted the following on his Twitter account just the other day:

West has made roughly 10 million since 2007. You would figure he wouldve been able to save just a little bit of that. West also claims a judge would not permit him to travel overseas to play like a number of other NBA players are trying to do, so apparently he is stuck applying for a job at Home Depot, most likely because they are not biased against silly neck tattoos.

We managed to get a copy of Delontes application.

Delonte was so serious about this Home Depot job he even took to the streets, trying to find current employees to ask them to put in a good word for him and give some tips and advice on orange fashion.

Home Depot was so impressed by his application and petitioning that they finally agreed to sign him and held a press conference announcing their most high-profile signing in the companys history, which really isnt saying much.

Home Depot has never been the same since!

Hes great at customer service, always willing to help any customer and make hilarious small talk while doing so.

If you're female hell even follow you out to your car after you're done shopping, bug you for your phone number and ask if you want an Afro ride until you finally give in and just give him your number. Than wily little Delonte!

Delonte once got in a looooooooooot of trouble after he was pulled over on a three-wheeled motorcycle and a police officer discovered he was carrying a large number of guns. Who knows if he was off to war or on his way to an NRA meeting? Either way it certainly didnt look good. Now that he works at Home Depot, however, he can just use the fork lifts to carry his stuff and it will just look like hes working!

With all those supplies around Delonte has even found creative ways to support his other hobbies and make all the customers he serves feel a bit more..relaxed.

Delonte is always working hard! When the job got a little too boring one day, he decided to build a stage for some entertainment. The employees LOVED his idea and it was suddenly party time at Home Depot!

On the plus side there were also plenty of places to hide and take a nap after the raging party and all the clean up. At least Delonte knows how to have a good time!

If you have kids dont be afraid to bring them on down to Home Depot. Delonte loves to give demonstrations with all the tools but make sure your kids dont hand over their toys. Delonte gets carried away sometimes.

Yeah. This lockout aint a game.

Morning Skate: Chiarelli taking heat in Edmonton


Morning Skate: Chiarelli taking heat in Edmonton

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading after a rough weekend for the Justice League movie. 


*Radko Gudas was suspended for 10 games after slashing at the head of Mathieu Perreault, and it’s an appropriate sentence for a play that has no place in the NHL, and from a player that really deserves to get slapped around by the Department of Player Safety. Some like the Hockey News here believe it should have been a more severe suspension, but this is the right move with a player that’s headed toward a Raffi Torres sentence the next time he crosses over the line. Let’s hope the message finally gets through to a dirty player, but I’m not holding my breath given his past history.  


*Edmonton Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli is beginning to take some heat in Edmonton with a hockey team that’s performing way under expectations to this point. 


*All Alexander Radulov wanted was to feel like he was wanted, you guys. The Dallas Stars just so happened to say that to him in the form of money and contract years. 


* does a Calder Trophy voting poll with their own staff and it looks like Clayton Keller is strongly in the lead, and that Charlie McAvoy isn’t getting nearly the mount of consideration that he should be getting right now. This is the only rookie averaging more than 20 minutes of ice time per game, people…c’mon now. 


*It’s officially over for the Montreal Canadiens just a couple of months into the season, and it may be for GM Marc Bergevin as well. I’m not sure the Habs are dead and buried quite yet, but Carey Price as a question mark certainly doesn’t help matters. 


*Hall of Famers Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne were both honored in Anaheim this weekend after their Hockey Hall of Fame honors last weekend. 


*For something completely different: Here’s a petition for fans to get a home release of the Zack Snyder cut of the Justice League movie. These people thirsting for ponderous, bombastic drudgery in their comic book movies amazes me. While I feel for Snyder and his family given their tragedy over the last year, I think his movies are god-awful and can’t fathom why anybody would be pounding the table demanding to see a cut that left the DC and Warner Brothers execs running and screaming for Joss Whedon. 

Belichick remembers Glenn: 'A good person with good intentions'


Belichick remembers Glenn: 'A good person with good intentions'

Terry Glenn, the Patriots' top draft pick in 1996, died early Monday morning in a one-car accident in Irving, Texas. He was 43. 

Bill Belichick coached Glenn as an assistant with the Patriots during Glenn's rookie season. He was later Glenn's head coach in 2000 and 2001. Belichick traded Glenn to the Packers before the 2002 season after a tumultuous run in New England that involved legal trouble, injuries and clashes with the coaching staff.

During a conference call with reporters soon after the news of Glenn's death was published, Belichick remembered Glenn for his natural physical ability and "a good heart."

"I was pretty close with Terry," Belichick said, "and his rookie season was my first year here in '96, and so I had a lot of interaction with him and other people that were involved in his life and his upbringing separate from the Patriots. Terry's a very smart individual. Had a lot of, obviously, a lot of physical skill and talent. Could do a lot of things on the football field very naturally. And I think he was deep down inside a good person with good intentions and, you know, a good heart. Obviously it's very unfortunate. Very unfortunate passing. I mean, it's a sad day. Sad news."

According to reports, Glenn was with his fiancee at the time of the accident. She's being treated at a local hospital for unspecified injuries.
